'Red Dragon' turns 100 on 4/20.......puff puff tear

     Featured on BIMMERPOST.com
This M3 has been a blast since i've owned it now 3 years. Huge grins and only a few moments. Lots of hard work involved basically rebuilding the entire turbo system, 2 headgaskets back to back, and a full interior and exterior make over.

no regrets.

Just went over 100k miles this afternoon while out for a drive.

Had to pull over on a nice stretch of country road and catalog her condition.

For your pleasure, its been awhile since i've posted any decent pics, its still dirty from the track last weekend.











1st full photos of the RCJ's and Mickey's mounted, these are the largest tires I think you can fit on an e36 stock fender, minor rubbing inside AND out with the coilovers on full height. Huge traction though . After these wear our i'll be going to R comps or Extreme summers and going back down on ride height.





Love the powder coat





Engine shots









Interior, washed out due to harsh exterior lighting





love my butt plug shift knob......



and finally 2 miles after these shots were taken I got this



followed by this




not bad for 30k boosted miles on a stock bottom end s52.

This is me running a FBO (I think) Mazdaspeed 3 last weekend in some really crappy temps. 2200+ DA hurt times a ton......

skip to :50 or so

Car looks absolutely amazing - especially considering it has 100k miles! Nice pics!

I ordered a Jaffster from Bimmerworld, naturally it's on backorder. Been waiting a month and a half now ... I really hope it ships soon.
